On estimation the relative risk of small area and visualization spatio-temporal map

Disease mapping is a method used to descript the geographical variation in risk (heterogeneity of risk) and to provide the potential reason (factors or confounders) to explain the distribution. Possibly the most famous uses of disease mapping in epidemiology were the studies by John Snow of the cholera epidemics in London. Accurate estimation relative risk of small areas such as mortality and morbidity, by different age, ethnic group, interval and regions, is important for government agencies to identify hazards and mitigate disease burden.

Visualization the dynamic interactive maps for results of spatio-temporal scanning

Scan statistics is one of the most widely used method for detecting and locating the clusters of disease or health-related events through the space-time dimension. Although the Specific software of SatScan is available for free and easier to use graphical user interface (GUI) interface, the click way and the resulting text format have became obstacles in biosurveillance since automated or reproduction operation and the fast communicate information tool appeared.

Modeling spatial and temporal variability by Bayesian multilevel model

The early detection of outbreaks of diseases is one of the most challenging objectives of epidemiological surveillance systems. In order to achieve this goal, the primary foundation is using those big surveillance data for understanding and controlling the spatiotemporal variability of disease through populations. Typically, public health’s surveillance system would generate data with the big data characteristics of high volume, velocity, and variety.
